See Calais and die

Or so it would seem. l'Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques (or INSEE to its friends) has done a bit of stat shooting, and has discovered that folk in the Deep North have the lowest life expectancy. Knowing the area, I imagine it is because faced with Dunkirk / Calais etc or death, the latter is quite appealing. Conversely, Ile-de-France is the best place to live to a riper old age, this being the Paris region and being the closest match to London plus home counties.

Elsewhere, our Gallic chums are still pre-occupied with Johnny Halliday going into tax exile, De Villepin testifying over Clearstream and the PCF choosing its candidate for the Presidential election - Marie-George Buffet. I do not think she and the other Buffet would have much in common.

I wonder if they also die on average before legally entitled to collect their pensions.

Congratulations on a 7th C I hear that one above you cheated by getting non combatants to vote. I feel this blackguard should be outed !!
Who is the cheat?

Off-topic, but I await you post on the Croydon Contender with interest. After your brilliant anti-Ken campaign it seems ironic (almost suspicious) that a man with Croydon running through his veins should emerge at this stage. Front up, what is your involvement?

Warren or Jimmy?

P - I am utterly fascinated by your post but also mystified , put a foolish if strangely attractive chap out of his misery and explain.

I know a Croydon Mayoral contender who had a piece in the Exopress recently , is that who you mean?

V - Either I expect... Buffett J has a song called 'Spending money', which I would guess is not a paean to redistribution of it.

Off topic, but what is the best thing to play on a banjo?

A flamethrower....

more flamethrower action


Blogger Croydonian said... 3:07 pm

Way back lost in the mists of time when I was young (and I'm still foolish) I discovered that a can of WD-40 with the tube attached made a very effective portable flamethrower. Fortunately I escaped, repeatedly, from suffering burns of first, second or third degree.

Nobody thought of it more than a schoolboy prank in those long lost golden days , nor firing airguns in public places.

I didn't know Johnny Halliday had gone into tax exile. Where did he go? It couldn't be a Francophone country as they're all part of Metropolitan France.

I saw him on a couple of discussion programmes when I lived in France, and he seems to be a genuinely very nice man. And intelligent.

Wrong x3. He's in La Suisse.  

Anonymous Anonymous said... 3:47 am

Swiss, eh? Well, wherever he goes to having his own money - EARNED BY HIM - being extorted by tax "authorities" to be redistributed to oiks by a corrupt government, that is a good thing.

Nice that it's on the same continong so he didn't even have to take a flight and check in and get "checked in" in a monitoring,Big Brother, sense.

I TOLD you he is intelligent. And, as I said, on his TV interviews and discussion programmes, a nice, thoughtful man.

People who spotted my deliberate mistake in my first paragraph, consider it corrected.
